Reese and Ryan marriage ended in divorce in 2007.
Speaking about that period, Reese Witherspoon, who is the Oscar-winning for Walk The Line, told Marie Claire magazine:
“I was hard on myself when I got divorced.
“And until I got remarried, I don’t think I realized how stressed I was.
“I feel so much relief. I don’t think I realized how stressed I was being a single parent. It was really, really stressful. It’s not easy on anybody.
“You know, somebody close to me once said, <<Oh, no man will ever accept your children.>> And I just thought it was the most horrifying thing someone has ever said to me in my entire life.
“I was determined to find somebody who would make that not true. And I got lucky. I did. I got very lucky, and he’s wonderful. And so wonderful with the children. I’m very blessed,” Reese Witherspoon said.
